Marathon workshop with Mara Yamauchi and Steve Vernon


Mara Yamauchi and Steve Vernon will share their experiences as international endurance athletes and more recently as coaches and mentors at an upcoming England Athletics marathon workshop.

Mara - who has written a blog for Run England over the last six months - will talk about her progression from 10K club runner to international marathon runner whilst Steve will share a case study of Andy Davies, Welsh Commonwealth Games marathon runner.

There will also be a question and answer session, and strength and conditioning coach and endurance runner Tim Egerton will deliver a practical workshop looking at physical preparation for performance at all levels.
